Over a lifetime, the immune system develops an extensive library of identified substances and microorganisms that are cataloged as “threat” or “not threat.” Vaccinations utilize this process to add to the library. They expose a person’s immune system to weakened or inactivated forms of bacteria and viruses that can no longer cause disease, so that the person’s immune system will recognize them and create antibodies that will be ready to protect against the infectious forms of these microorganisms if the person comes in contact with them in the future.
